NND Sponsors Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #445

Have you heard of the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge? For each challenge they post a YUMMY cupcake photo and color combo for inspiration! Everybody likes cupcakes, right?

The current challenge going up today features the a FLORAL theme!



We're sponsoring this challenge so If you head over to their blog and play along you have a chance to win a $25 store credit to our store at newtonsnookdesigns.com! How awesome is that?

Of course I had to play along -- here's the card I created. Since we just release a cute little floral set called Little Lilies this month I wanted to use it for this challenge!  This little stamp set features an image of the lily of the valley flower. I stamped and colored it using watercolor markers. This image of lily in the valley is super simple to color. I just used green for the leaves and a tiny bit of grey to add highlights to the flowers. Then I trimmed out the image using the coordinating Little Lilies Die Set.

For the card I die cut out the scallop edged panel from some striped yellow paper using our Frames & Flags Die Set. I also cut out the white stitched rectangle using the same die set. On the rectangle I added some blue watercolor splotches. Then I layered and lily over the panel and added the "thinking of you" sentiment next to it! So simple and pretty.

I decided to add on a kraft colored twine ribbon and a small piece of green washi to give this card some extra finishing touches! Then I mounted the whole thing on a light blue cardstock base which matches the blue watercolor.
